It’s a sad day for the world of celeb romance.
The Wanted’s Max George has announced he’s no longer engaged to Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan.
The much-loved couple announced their engagement in June last year after just seven months together.
The Wanted have been traveling around America since February promoting their album and scoring a Billboard Number 1 for their single Glad you Came, so the couple have spent two months apart.
During an interview with Ryan Seacrest on KIIS-FM, it was noted that Max was engaged to Michelle, to which Max quickly responded, “No, no, no, not anymore.”
He was then asked if he was enjoying the benefits of being in a boy band.
“Absolutely,” he said.
While Max has been livin’ it up in the US, Michelle’s been at home in England, posting some pretty cryptic messages on Twitter.
“Can't sleep! Last thing I need right now...” she wrote last night, just hours before Max made the announcement on the radio.
She also wrote, “There's some sly people in this world!”
During Max’s radio interview, he also spoke about the time he and the rest of The Wanted boys got Punk’d.
“Basically we got accused of kidnapping an 11-year-old girl. So, it was pretty terrible. We met her outside at a TV show, she was really cute and sweet and she said hello. Then when we finished the TV show; when we came out her dad came up to us and was like: ‘Have you seen my little girl?’ He was like: ‘She was with you guys.’ And she wasn’t, that was all a bit awkward.”
He continued, “So, we drove off and about five minutes later we got pulled over by the police and they said that there was a complaint against us about a girl going missing and all of a sudden she appeared from the back of the car. It was pretty intense. I was like: ‘This must be a joke.’ But they left it going for nearly two hours, then I thought it might not be.”
